  1. They normally do before they let you take the pup!! ^
  2. As PP states, your post history makes it easy to figure out the breeder. Also, I do not talk about cost at all until the breeder brings it up.
  3. Wonder if he has special methods of training greyhounds to sit as well! :p
  4. I hate fox hunting with a passion too. I also read about that incident with much sadness. The "whimpering" fox.. it broke my heart. I at least hope it may be a tool used to ban the "sport". Fox hunting with hounds is illegal here everywhere but Victoria and has been illegal in the UK since 2005. What fox hunting has to do with this thread sure beats me. If you think Strychnine baiting or trapping is a "kinder" death, think again. Quite a few dog owners struggle to contain their pet dogs. How fox owners would fare any better beats me. How is denying a wild animal territory and social interaction with other foxes "kind"??? I really like foxes (as animals, they are beautiful to watch) but I am not anti fox hunting. I do think that ethical hunt clubs in the past did a better job managing fox populations than we do today.
  5. My post shop lady said there was only wussy, city dogs. She said she would have liked BC, SBT, kelpie, ACD, GSD
  6. We would need 5,000 greyhounds and it would take 6,000 years x New industry-- repurpose ex racing greys for wool production. Certainly, you would get the right numbers of dogs. You just need a crazy investor and a massive farm/station.
  7. Yep seems like white and fawn are the go'ers
  8. On another dog forum (don't want to name here in case it violates guidelines) a poster said that blue was now the most common SBT colour. I find this hard to believe, but I jumped on the puppy listing for the breed on here and at least every second listing had blues available. I would have assumed brindle from the amount of "staffys" of that colour that turn up in pounds. Any thoughts to the validity of this? Really blows the "wowza blue SBT worth $3500" notion out of the water.
  9. Don't treat me like an idiot please Jo, I didn't say they were the same, I said each to their own. Well, I don't have any children either. If I had to choose between someone elses' children and my dogs, my dogs would get precedence every time. I am responsible for my dogs, I am not responsible for other peoples children. See, I don't get this. Are you saying if it was a life or death situation you would let a child die to save your dog? Note I am asking for clarification because I am not sure you really mean what I think you mean. I would do that too. I will first save my dog and then any stranger.....child or adult!!! But I would do all I can to save anyone, human or animal. If you will save a strange child before your own, then and only then you would have the right to question this. Because we always prioritise what we love most. Before I had kids, I probably would have saved my pets before strange children. Now I have the full gauntlet of maternal hormones it would be my children, other people's children, my husband, the pets, strange adults. That fatal distraction article made me cry so much-- it was tragic.
  10. http://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/article/1152642/dog-breeding-licences-wont-protect-animals Sorry on iPad so someone else will have to post text body for non clickers.
  11. This has happened to me once and it was one of the most nerve wracking experiences of my life. So glad you got her again.
  12. Can anyone recommend any road transporters for NSW? I need a dog moved from Nowra to Dubbo, so far the only one I can find that does the run is DogMovers but they need two different companies to do it. Appreciate any assistance.
